Advanced Storyline Development   Skills

Leaning into the incredible online resources, I invested in Devlin Peck's Storyline Project Lab to fast-track my eLearning development skills. The modules below are a mix of projects completed as assignments and concept projects completed as challenges.

Storyline 360 eLearning

Interactive Timeline

The focus was adhering to brand assets, capturing HEX codes and fonts with extensions, sliders and variables, layers, and aligning text to interval points.

Tab Interaction

This Tab interaction reveals rules of visual design based on Robin William's The Non-Designer's Design Book, including links to websites that further explain the six most common forms of inconsistency when designing visually-appealing copy and graphics.

Assessment on Cognitive Load Theory

The questions include one initial and one final required question. Questions 2-5 draw randomly from a question bank and shuffle the order of answer choices. Types of questions, feedback options and review slide are fully customizable in Storyline 360.

Drag &  Drop

This assessment follows a learning module on an Adult Learning Theory called Gagne's 9 Events. 

Interactive Video

This video was completed in Vyond and focused on adding video to slides, adding popups, creating and animating groups, and an intro to cue points. The storyboard and voiceover files were supplied by the Storyline Project Lab.

Canva Presentations

Canva empowers creative and professional presentations with its diverse range of features and user-friendly interface. Presentations become more than just a series of slides; they become a powerful narrative with integrated videos, animations, and interactive elements to bring ideas to life and leave a lasting impression on the audience.

Presenter View

Screenshots of a vILT offer a glimpse into the 30-minute eLearning quick course developed in Canva Presentation.

The Marlins Swim Team Executive Committee (EC) was lacking training for their seasonal staff on this important topic of swimmer safety. One document was posted on the website, but no training existed, and no policy was in place. The EC was at risk for litigation when an incident would occur, which was likely.

I worked with the EC and one involved parent as SME's to fine-tune the policy and plan the training in accordance with the CDC's Heads Up recommendations for all youth athletes and the organizations that serve them.

Part 1 of 2

This vILT Presentation is part 1 of training. The on-the-job know-how is critical and requires in-person demonstration of skills, which is part 2. Because the learners are young adults, possibly first job, they need to build their confidence in being able to accurately perform this job requirement.

Because of the nature of teamwork and coaching, all coaches will participate in both sections of this training together.

Head Coach Duties

I wrote the script to accompany each slide and included links to 4 videos that are found on the CDC's website. These YouTube shorts integrate real stories and real healthcare providers into the training to lend credibility to the topic.

The Swim Team's head coach leads the vILT to build rapport with the team of coaches and trains them by reading the script, pausing for knowledge checks, and answering questions throughout as needed.

The head coach's biggest responsibility is safety training, and is now positioned for the on-site training (Part 2), assured that job performance is defined and can be implemented. 

From the Learner's Point-of-View

Take a peek at this 42-slide mini course, running on a 5-second timer here for demonstration purposes.

This module features 2 scenarios and allows for learner response time. It is slated for a 30- minute learning experience in a  virtual instructor-led format.

eLearning Software Guide

Platform Onboarding

The client helps businesses with live-event participation at conferences and exhibitions to interact digitally with buyers, vendors, and partners in the global supply chain. In advance of the International Aerospace & Defense Exhibition in Korea, the client needed an eLearning software guide for vendors to quickly get set up on the platform. Users can access this PPT eLearning module and the client's platform on desktop or mobile.

The client requested an instructional designer and eLearning developer with an understanding of User Experience (UX) and design best practices.


Click the play button to experience the software guide (presented here as a movie on a 5-sec automatic player) and then see below for a detailed description of the client's needs and the development process. 

Client Needs

The client required a concise, visually appealing, user-friendly, step-by-step guide to setting up user profiles in the official event directory, and requested a minimalist design that focused on clarity.


The goal was to minimize the number of sections/slides and images while providing clear instructions. The text was provided, although it required some editing to improve upon clarity, grammar and spelling.

Development Process

  • minimized the 34 provided screenshots to a 25-slide deck by featuring two related screenshots per slide. 

  • included an intro and conclusion slide as well. The animated helicopter (intro) and airplane (conclusion) were an added bonus to bookend the learner experience, and as a place to include simple instructions.

  • each slide features the screenshot in the top left-hand corner as a repetitive principle; each text instruction is in close proximity to the specific screenshot and is left-aligned.

  • pulled the yellow color from the event logo and chose a minimalist, slick design incorporating a yellow triangle that is consistent throughout.

  • screenshots are backed by a grey container to provide contrast against the white background. 

Functionality and Accessibility

The final product is easy to understand for users of diverse technical backgrounds. This was accomplished by incorporating a yellow arrow on each instruction slide to draw attention even further to the point of interest in each screenshot. The arrows are animated with a user click to engage the user, as well as give the user time to read the text before introducing the arrow. The angle of the yellow arrow reflects the angle of the yellow triangle design in the corner of each slide for appropriate balance.

Finally, the guide was developed in English and the editable file delivered to the client to implement in English. The client will replace Korean instructions into each text box for a second version for Korean-language learners.

E-Book Content Design

Monetizing Client Content

This client found early success in Real Estate as an investor using a niche financing option. He created content around his experience, including two case studies, and then needed help presenting it in an attractive and consumable way to promote his business to social media followers. He plans to monetize this E-Book and pair it with future virtual training offerings.

I developed several charts to illustrate his data, sourced all icons and photography to help organize the content and bring visual life to the document.

This one lead magnet I designed was included on pg. 7 of the E-Book.

Leaning into the Client Experience

Overall, the visual elements and color scheme lend a hand to a rather dry topic on financial investment. The client is former military, so I leaned into the OODA Loop with military colors and typeface and rounded out his Forward with a nod to his Air Force career. 

Classroom & Virtual Instruction 

Educator Instructional PPT

This presentation captures the students' attention and kicks off class discussions. The presentation will also be available to students as a link at the end of the unit for at-home review ahead of the assessment.


For this project, the client provided the storyboard with slide titles, copy, and a note about which animal should be showcased or a list to choose from. I developed the slides by sourcing the animals in Canva Pro and letting the images be the inspiration for each slide's layout- either brilliant full screen photos or photos with no background. Transparency was utilized in many slides so as not to take away from the scenery of the illustrations.

  • The 16 sections from the storyboard became 24 slides so as not to crowd illustrations or copy onto one slide.

  • With the audience in mind, I recommended simple animations to hold the students' attention for the duration of the learning time.

  • Text effects, such as LIFT, SHADOW, GLITCH or NEON, were used on the copy in most slides to give the text dimension.

  • Headings are Binate in 72pt; subheading and body text is Glacial Indifference.
